So my question is how do you get your hands on bitcoins.. this is kinda confusing to me thus far hope i am not alone in this..... I did download the bitcoin pdf and will be reading it soon.  I have some dollars to invest with and would like to know if this bitcoin is worth it... as you all know gold is way to high to buy now..

Heya -- Just wanted to tip you off that you can easily purchase small amount of bitcoin over on the OTC exchange. It is kinda involved though -- you have to generate a PGP key, login to an IRC chat channel etc. It may be worth checking out: www.bitcoin-otc.com

I wouldn't consider Bitcoin an investment and I don't consider gold an investment either. Gold is money; not a money substitute but can and is used as money. Bitcoin is similar to gold in that there are only so much produced each day (mining gold vs mining bitcoin). It is divisible and will not spoil etc etc.

Good luck and welcome to Bitcoin!

Got interested on Bitcoins to buy a game  (Portal and Portal 2) ...
... and have both an FPGA board and an ATI Radeon GPU  ...
Could put my greedy hands on a small Nvidia Tesla cluster (16 GPU) but just for small experiments

Just looking at the numbers, even the nVidia tesla just isn't worth mining. The AMD / ATI chips are just so much better for mining. Much quicker ROI with ATI GPUs

please do so! and get a post Smiley

Don't mind if I do.

Imagine if the guy from Aronofsky's π was a vegan who watched too much TV and his computer was a Mac. That's me.  Only I'm haughtier.  And I have a better sense of humor.  I'm just kind of awesome in general, I guess.  And yet somehow, despite all of that, more down to Earth.  You'll learn to love me or hate me over time, it breaks about 50/50 at first but I end up like an 80/20 positive on most boards.

Signatures are only used for 2 things - Advertising, like this one, and teenagers on social networking sites that feel a need to waste your time, which is fundamentally what all advertising does.  Abolish signatures on message boards.

That seems decent Sabi, most people don't hit those numbers with that card. Look here.

Thank you so much Turbo for your advice.  The only setting I was comfortable with with is below.  I need to use this PC while mining, and it's the only setting that was always stable.  Not the top of performance from the link you sent, but It's right up there and I can still use my pc.

Hello everybody. I just thought I'd say hi. I'm fairly new to bitcoin. I started mining about a week or so ago and I'm really excited by the possibilities of this new economy Cheesy

I've been following and using bitcoins for awhile now. My mining ambitions have brought me here for counsel Wink

I'm primarily interested in economic/political theory, science fiction, humor and an assortment of other random shit. I study philosophy and have a growing interest in cryptography.* All of these kinda converge in bitcoin.

Holla at a m'fucka.


*this is despite me not having had formal math instruction past high school courses I didn't pay attention to. I'm trying to catch up lol

Greetings from Thailand!
I am Lee Little, an American jeweler and smith living mainly in the Land of Smiles. Usually I only post on gem and jewelry forums but heard about Bitcoin from a sparkling friend and have been reading here for awhile. Very interesting, you folks are rare birds, indeed. I have not trusted government currency for a long time now and that actually helped lead me to being a jeweler as I had stocked up on silver and gold rather than saving paper. Best regards, Lee

I just noticed the noob restrictions and thought it be a good idea to introduce myself.  My name is Rich (aka Spotswood) and my main interest is building custom computer cases as a hobby.   Here's just a few examples of my work:

Here's what I built for Evil:

That wooden case was for a watercooled SR-2 rig with room for twenty 5.25-inch drive bays in the front and four quad 140mm rads in the bottom.   Grin

Gonna give you guys a taste of what Spotswood builds..
Cannot recommend him enough if anyone is interested in getting some custom BTC rigs, or FAH, or whatever you want em for.

I started off with this.  Lips sealed

Here is my build of the double stack I originally ordered, I have already ordered a second double stack to make me a quad, but that project is still a couple weeks out.
Solid construction, easy assembly, unlimited expand-ability, and custom designs (I took an ATX, but he can adjust for any size you need.)
